's so much at stake, i hope you'll join me in supporting richard mourdock for u.s. senate. >> and the campaign says they have not asked him to pull the ad. is that a mixed message? >> potentially, although i think some of what we saw yesterday was reporting that it would have drawn more attention to the campaign and to their differences if they asked him to withdraw the ad and then he refused to do so. so i think their hope is that they've made their statement and they'll try to move on especially because this is not a state that romney himself is contesting. it looks like it will go to him regardless. >> republicans are asking richard mourdock to apologize. kelly was supposed to do a fund-raising event with him, now she's not. let me just play a little bit about what some of those folks are saying. >> what he said was kind of crazy, but having said that, this election for president is not about that. >> it depends on what he does. if he apologizes and says he misspoke and he was wrong and he asks people to forgive him then obviously, i would be the first -- you know, as i

he would create daylight between the u.s. and israel. >> i will stand with israel if they are attacked. >> on several occasions, the president underscored his support for israel. do you think that last night any minds were changed on that issue? >> well, it's hard to say. you know, when's unusual about the relationship with israel right now is there have been a number of public disagreements between the obama administration and the israeli government, prik minister netanyahu. i think that governor romney sought that opening to make that distinction but in reality the u.s. has been very supportive. the president mentioned the iron dome, anti-missile system that prevents israelis from gaza, rockets and intelligence relationship with israel is particularly pronounced in this administration. so here again, i think we're probably not looking at much of a difference between what the two individuals would do regarding israel. >> and there are a lot of issues last night where clearly they agreed but i want to underscore the point you made. you were appointed by george w. b
's a good report. u.s. home prices are starting to come off the bottom. you've got market research saying prices were up 4.6% in august from a year ago and that is the largest year over year gain in six years. keep in mind though that many home prices are still down about 0% from their 2006 peak. why is this happening? a number of reasons. one being tightening supplies of homes for sale. now, existing single family sells were up 9%, but the supply of listed homes for sale was down 18%. limited supply. hopefully pushes up prices. >> let's talk about homes for the 1%. a couple of celebrity cribs just went on the market. hillary swank. >> not 1%, but 0.11%. her home is listed for $9.5 million and you know what? it's a good investment because she bought that home in 2007 for $5.8 million and guess how much a monthly payment would be? >> a lot. >> $32,900. assuming 20% down payment on a 30-year fixed. and then let me show you p. diddy's apartment here in new york city. this is listed for $8.5 million. it was originally a three bedroom apartment. probably thinking $8.5 million for a three bedro
study shows that for the first time ever, the u.s. does not have a protestant majority. the pew survey says the percentage of protestant adults has fallen to 48%. it's not so much that people are changing faiths. the number of americans with no religious affiliation at all has increased from 15% to 20% in the last five years. there's an interesting political twist to all of this. those who describe themselves as having no religion vote mostly for democrats and support abortion rights and gay marriage. losing weight clicked for me when i had everything i needed to lose weight right in my hands. sophomore year started weight watchers online, the weight started coming off. ahh! oh my gosh!

filings on u.s. homes for the month of september fell to their lowest in five years as you mentioned. some states are seeing their foreclosures rise, but we're talking about the overall decrease here which puts the combined number of, for example, reports of default notices, scheduled auctions, bank repossessions, all those things at the lowest total since july 2007. it's also 7% less than august's rate and down 16% from september 2011. all that together means realty trac at least says we are past the worst of the foreclosure crisis. before we get excited, though, one caveat. and that is it is taking longer to foreclose. the process is getting longer. which automatically reduces the foreclosure numbers. so where he have to be careful with this one. >> mandy drury, thank you. >>> employees sometimes really do say the darnedest things. careerbuilder.com is out with its list of real excuses folks have used recently to call out si sick. here's a few. i'm too upset to come to woman after watching the hunger games. my dead grand mother is being exhumed for an investigation. there is always the e

them for you. we had negative european headlines. we had big u.s. manufacturers and multinationals disappointed the market with either lower guidance chris or worse than expected earnings or revenue. that kind of confirms slowing global growth. we also had reports that ben bernanke, fed chief, may not stand for a third term which some think could can mean changes essentially or the end to the everlasting money printing that the market has kind of become hooked on. those were the things that were weighing on the mark yesterday. today, we've got a number of big companies like boeing coming out with stronger profits. that's good calming the market down and we got economic data in the form of new home sales which were the best since april of last year. >> the tech sector was abuzz yesterday because the new ipad mini was unveiled but the stock took a hit. >> right. absolutely. this is why. firstly price. they're pricing the new smaller ipad well above the competition starting at $329. some had been expecting apple to price the ipad min inny at maybe $250 to $300 to counter those less ex
